Tripoli, 14 September 2013:
A UK Trade and Investment healthcare mission from the Yorkshire and Humber region will be visiting Tripoli from . . .[restrict]15-19 September.
The healthcare mission will consist of six companies and will be visiting state hospitals as well as private clinics and medical equipment and supply companies in Tripoli.
Speaking about the visiting mission, David Harris, the Head of UKTI Libya said that “for UK businesses with prior experience in Libya, or those new to the market, this is a fascinating time to be visiting Libya and to continue to build, or start to establish, the sort of sustainable long-term relationships that are essential for doing business in Libya”.
“The importance of personal relationships in this market cannot be over emphasized”, he stressed.
At a time when some may be reluctant to visit Libya, Harris added that “despite the troubles, the Libyan economic fundamentals remain strong and, in the longer term, we continue to remain upbeat about (British) prospects (in doing business in Libya).”
